Crisis and GLAM

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

What role does open access to cultural heritage play in today’s crises? Join to hear about the experiences and activities of wikimedians responding to crises, and to map out collaborations and practices that can help combat crisis situations facing humans, the environment, and cultural heritage. AvoinGLAM organizes the workshop as part of the program of Wikimania 2022.

Join the session 11 August 14.05–15.00 UTC[edit]

We had the privilege to hear four speakers talk about their experiences confronting and responding to crises.

Éder Porto (Wiki Movimento Brasil) introduced the digital reconstruction work they undertook when a massive fire devastated the building and collections of the National Museum of Brazil in 2018.

Nassima Chahboun (Wiki World Heritage) walked us through the work of WHindanger that promotes and raises awareness of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in danger using participatory creative tactics and Wikimedia projects to create an interactive website.

Hanna Osadchuk (Wikimedia Ukraine) talked about open access to cultural heritage as seen from within the ongoing. Vyacheslav Mamon from Wikimedia Ukraine reported also how the Ukrainian community uses wiki projects as a tool for documenting and preserving free knowledge in the midst of a full-scale war unleashed by Russia.

The session is moderated by Patricia Diaz Rubio (Wikimedia Chile) and Susanna Ånäs (AvoinGLAM). Linda Saukko-Rauta records the session graphically.

Bring your ideas and experiences to the meeting! Based on the introductions, new tactics combining cultural heritage, voluntary work, humanitarian and creative activities can be developed together.
